of the: For τῆς, as B. and almost all others, AC. read τῷ (i.e. the church's angel who is in Ephesus). So A. (not C.) has in verses 8 and 18. 36. gives τῷ τῆς in verse 1. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.5)
of the: Tisch. τῷ, for τῆς in verses 1, 8, and 18. (Prospect 1:153)
in Ephesus: ABC., above forty mss., Vulg., Syr., Cop., And. Are. cat. substitute ἐν Ἐφέσῷ (Compl. omits ἐν) for Ἐφεσίνης. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.5)
in Ephesus: Rec. Ἐφεσίνης, but ἐν Ἐφεσῷ is without doubt the reading. (Prospect 1:153)
in Ephesus: of course the Revisers correct “of” to "in" Ephesus, following a better text than the received one. (Bible Treasury 14:143)
in the midst: AC. read ἐμμέσω, B. and the rest ἐν μέσῳ. (Erasmus ἐπὶ μέσω, with no extant witness.) (Rev. of John, 1860, p.5)
